You don't need thought to be.
You don't need thought to live...(the heart beats with or without thought)
YOU ARE with or without thought.
See how effortlessly life flows with thought....and how thought is not needed at all. Thoughts are companions which attempt to make sense of this "life"....but they are not essential to Being.
Whatever appears, including thought, is simply Being...appearing as separate "things." Yet thoughts seem to have so much power! They seem to become "sticky" as they orbit around the concept of "me." Indeed, we could describe the "me" as simply a bundle of swirling thoughts stuck together as an idea (a mini-tornado!), but with no solid substance at all.
But if it is seen that thought is just another aspect of This, a vibration of Be-ing, like a rose or a button, then it might also be seen that thoughts are, in fact, not "sticky" at all. They just appear. They float. Then they disappear.... what is there (here) to stick to?? What power do they have?
Today a plant in my room got watered. Thoughts came which said that the plant needed water...then more thoughts came that said that "I" would do it tomorrow, then more thoughts appeared, images, etc...and a back and forth conversation of sorts seemed to occur. Then those thoughts disappeared, and later it was noticed that the body simply moved and watered the plant. Right on time, no thought needed. How simple it can be, when thought is left to BE as it is.... "Life" simply moves, and "thought" does not do it, and neither does the idea of "you."
Ahhh....FREEDOM !! ;-))
